Angela’s journey with Compass

Having spent most of my career dealing directly with adults’ mental health and caring for looked after children, Compass is the perfect fit for me!

I joined Compass in March 2019 as a Service Manager with the clear goal of making a “house a home” for the children and I can honestly say that it has been a fantastic adventure.

During my time here, I have worked on a variety of initiatives, such as creating new homes, acquisition of homes, establishing and growing new teams, becoming a school governor and many other projects to help Compass Children’s Services grow.

Working with wonderful people and helping fantastic children has led me to the position of Regional Operations Manager (ROM), with an emphasis on quality operations, corporate parenting, placements and education.

I am the “Responsible Individual” for eight Compass Community children’s homes. I manage many teams with a focus on prioritising staff development.

At Compass we strongly believe in recognising each child’s needs with a relationship-based approach to improve individual outcomes. We continue to be solution-focused to ensure our practices are grounded by methodologies and ideas that support maintaining children are at the heart of our shared life journey.
